Bloomfield Hills, MI ― October 09, 2012 ― Lakeside Software, a leader in business intelligence solutions for IT professionals, today announced that Lakeside’s core data platform, SysTrack, is providing enhanced analytics for VMware View® Business Process Desktop architecture.

SysTrack enables IT professionals managing business process desktops to measure the quality of the end user experience and better understand end user application and resource utilization, guiding their BPD utilization to effectively manage remote end-user experience across high-bandwidth latency and ensure optimal desktop experience for remote end users. Together, BPD and SysTrack give IT the power to effectively manage offshore and outsourced employee desktops for superior performance:

  • Improved End User Experience and Productivity — SysTrack provides real time visibility of the VMware View® Business Process Desktop end user experience, providing insight into performance and productivity
  • PCoIP® Metrics Tracking — SysTrack monitors all 33 session metrics specific to PCoIP performance and supports new PCoIP management interfaces in VMware View 5 to track display protocol behavior
  • Diagnosis of Poorly Performing Applications — SysTrack generates an audit trail of applications accessed by specific BPD remote users, and for particular sets of systems
  • Infrastructure and Resource Optimization — SysTrack enables IT administrators to achieve visibility into remote BPD desktop performance for easier identification, diagnosis and elimination of potential problems before user productivity is impacted
  • Root Cause / Historical Forensic Analysis — SysTrack root cause analysis provides insight into business process desktop capabilities, reducing time spent on troubleshooting
  • Capacity Planning — SysTrack accurately quantifies the usage of VMware View system resources and provides a methodology for profiling associated BPD user and application behavior, eliminating the guessing at hardware expenditures to support a user base
  • System Stability — SysTrack provides preemptive management of developing system stability concerns, providing automated health reports that document system stability and reliability for any VMware View Business Process Desktop application, service, user or system
  • Inventory Change Management and Validation — VMware View Business Process Desktop administrators can use SysTrack to identify and assess the impact of system-wide or enterprise-wide changes, including determining whether all system changes were made at the appropriate time
  • System Lockdown and Security — VMware View Business Process Desktop administrators can utilize SysTrack to stabilize their desktop environments by halting the execution of any unapproved application or website
